A Long Slough

I awoke Wednesday morning to rain.  I knew that meant slower traveling and a 10+ hour ride would be made more difficult with a curvy mountain pass to tackle.  Thankfully my riding jacket, overpants and boots are quality gear; th rain isn’t so bad if you are dry.  It took a while, but I finally reached the city of Linares. Signage is somewhat confusing sometimes. So after motioning down a road and saying “Galaeneas” to a man at a corner,I took off after he with a concerned look, used his right hand making motions to express curvy.

If all roads were easy and straight,I wouldn’t own a motorcycle.  Thankfully the rain had let up; it was now only slightly dreary.  Something wonderful happened after just 15 minutes- the sun appeared and it was kinda warm.  So in no time I was having curvy fun.  After 20-30 minutes I realize that I have a go pro.  I put it on and took off.  Unfortunately the best curves were behind me.  But it was warm at least.  I would find out later that I had passed into semi arid high desert.

The rest of the day was ride,ride,ride through the cities Matehuala, San Luis Potosi, and Queretaro til I reached San Juan del Rio where I was greeted in the home of Alan and Beth McManus with their kids Cameron and Dayton.  Beth’s mom too I should add.


I hadn’t resolved how to get funds yet; so, coming to another friends home was comforting.

Speaking of needs bring met, I was remiss to not share earlier that during the troubling early days I was encouraged and emboldened by many people’s sharing.  Thank you Wes, the guys on Advrider, Luke and Bethany, Alan and Beth, and more for sure.
